The LCMS series of surveys in Zambia were originally based on the Priority Surveys of 1991 and 1993. While the Priority Surveys were aimed at evaluating structural adjustment policies, the LCMS series focused on providing indicators of living conditions and poverty.

The 2004-2005 LCMS IV was the fourth in the series. A two-stage stratified cluster sample design was used. The survey covered all provinces of Zambia. The sample was approximately 1,048 standard enumeration areas (SEAs) and 20,000 households.

The poverty estimates are not comparable across all surveys in this series.
